It's summer.  It's hot.  And our beautiful garden plants need watering.

Would you like to join our team and water occasionally?  First thing each day before 9 is preferred.  Hope you are interested!

Traveling Chalice Program

The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;

ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest .

~Matthew 9:37-38

 

In this Year of Consecrated Life, the Parish Council is excited to pilot a new program that will allow us, as a Parish, to answer the call and help to increase awareness and prayer for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. You and/or your family will be presented the Traveling Chalice during the 9am Sunday Mass to keep for the week. Instructions and recommended daily prayers will be provided with the Chalice bag - all we need is your willingness to host and pray every day for one week.

 

Parents, this is an excellent way to get kids involved and pray together as a family!

 

See the sign-up sheet in the Gathering Space to reserve your week.

 

Please consider hosting the Traveling Chalice for a week and praying daily for an increase in vocations.

 

Questions? Please contact Allie Yardley (allieyardley@gmail.com). God Bless!


Donuts and Diversity

After the 9am Mass there is usually a crowd of 50-150 parishioners enjoying a cup of coffee, fruit juice, a doughnut and conversation, courtesy of our Knights of Columbus. Fun for all ages, seniors to toddlers.  Adults standing around making or renewing friendships as the children dart around playing but bothering no one. A very pleasant extension of the 9am Mass or preparation for the next one at 11:30AM.

Own a business? Would you like to remember a loved one with a weekly memorial?  Looking to reach out to your fellow parishioners every week?  Would you like to help Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in a unique way?
